Border guards find bootleg booze pipeline

MOSCOW -- Authorities in Ukraine said they foiled plans to ship bootleg alcohol from Moldova to Ukraine via a pipeline. The SBU security service said Tuesday border guards in the country's west stopped works to lay pipes on the bed of the Dniester river at a point where it crosses the border. The would-be bootleggers rented a house on the riverbank on the Ukrainian side and started to lay the pipe across the river, authorities said. The SBU released footage of the pipeline being dug up.
